Press Release

 (Washington, DC) Today, Rep. Grace F. Napolitano (D-El Monte) applauded the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals' unanimous decision refusing to lift the nationwide halt on President Trump’s executive order banning refugees and citizens from seven predominantly Muslim countries, which are some of the most vetted nations in the world.

“The Ninth Circuit’s unanimous decision is a victory for all of the people and their families who were affected by President Trump’s unconstitutional ban and everyone who has been fighting with us, pressuring the president to withdraw this ban which makes us less safe," Napolitano said. “Liberty and justice also prevailed last night, proving our system of checks and balances cannot be shaken. We implore the president to respect our judicial system and eliminate this inhumane ban once and for all.”
